Zimbabwe’s tour of Ireland postponed due to COVID-19


Zimbabwe’s cricket tournament in Ireland over two weeks over two weeks has been postponed due to the pandemic on Thursday.

The teams planned to play three ODIs and five T20Is from August 6-24 in Belfast and Bready.

But in Northern Ireland, Zimbabwe is on the UK red list for serious cases of coronavirus. As far as travel is concerned, this means that only nationals of Britain and Ireland and British residents of the Red List countries may enter. In Ireland, visitors from Zimbabwe must serve a compulsory 14-day hotel quarantine.

Meanwhile, South Africa, from another red list country, is touring Ireland.

Still, Cricket Ireland have decided to reschedule the Zimbabwean tour.

“It is now expected that the series will be held in August-September, but that sometimes changes of place will be required to receive the latest advice,” Cricket Ireland said in a statement.

“These changes may also have a number of effects with the broader timetable, and the outcome of these changes will be announced in due course.”
